Zahra Hosseini





Zahra Hosseini is an Artist and Printmaker who focuses on the relationship between artistic practices and disability studies. She began her work in the field of disability studies with a critical view of the representation of the disabled body in contemporary art. Sharing vulnerability and celebrating complexity are topics that she has recently addressed in her work, and by looking at disability as day-to-day lived experience and creative force, she raises the question of how people with disabilities express their bodies with the help of creative arts as a means of expression. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Faculty of Art and Architecture of Azad University Tehran and is presently pursuing her Masters in Fine Arts at Concordia University.
